or is that not fair? >> i'm not a big fan of the obama administration, but i was marginally involved in discussions during the presidency of george w. bush about egypt, because they wanted to push egypt toward reform and nudge hosni mubarak toward reform. they were very concerned about the ways of hosni mubarak. and in the end, they pulled back from it. so i think there's plenty of blame to go around. this is a man who has been in power from reagan to obama. he's known five presidents, and he's picked the pocket and stiffed five presidents in a row. this kind of guessing who lost egypt and who should have known, i am really not interested in it. i wrote a lot about egypt trying to underline the troubles of the mubarak regime. it's really not about this debate in washington. it's really about this revolution in egypt and whether we go and embrace it and proclaim it and accept it as a legitimate revolution that a free people are entitled to. >> david, given the history with egypt, the american support of the mubarak regime for 30 years, how in your opinion have they been playing this, mixed messages

to the white house. headed straight to the dining room and met for about an hour with president obama. here is a sign of just how much things can change in washington over the course of a few months. if this meeting had happened, say, right after the mid term elections, who do you think would have the upper hand? president obama had just been handed an electoral drubbing, a shellacking in his words. republicans were feeling very, very mandaty about that. >> i am not going to compromise on my principles. >> first and foremost, we are not going to be willing to work with him on the expansive liberal agenda he's been about. >> there will be no compromise on repealing obama care, no compromise on stopping democrats from growing government and raising taxes, and if i hadn't been clear enough yet, let me say again, no compromise. >> no compromise. we are here to show the democrats who's boss. at that time it was essentially the morning after the mid term elections. president obama was arguably at the lowest point of his presidency. they talked about how mr. obamaç would have to bend to the will
rates businesses will be hit in the long term according to the "washington post" starting in 2014, obama would target companies for sharply higher payroll taxes to help states replenish their unemployment funds and repay their debts to washington. growing deficit and tax hikes on the horizon. how is this likely to play out for the president in the 2012 race? governor, i don't get it, the white house doesn't get it. again in two years we have the issue of raising taxes on small business. now they are going to tax small business here. what part of this is not going to help the economy do you think they don't get? >> that is why the poll numbers are reflective of the public's per self watch is really going on. -- perception of what is really going on. the policies lack the soundness we you consider the idea of bailing out states that is going to be the answer to these problems. no, the poll numbers reflect that americans, at this point are saying, enough is enough. this ain't our first rodeo. after two years of failed leftist policies we are not believing growing more government and taxing
of the things that's made this so fascinating is that while president obama has faced foreign policy changes before, afghanistan, north korea, this is the first one that is coming at this whitehouse in real time. where they're having to adjust their rhetoric and positions to events they really can't control. they're missing a whole lot of leverage. what i find most fascinating in my most recent conversations with whitehouse officials who are dealing with this, is that they now recognize that the american aid to egypt which is $1.5 a year isn't much leverage. much is in military equipment and most of the jobs back here. their real leverage at this point is the fact that the protesters still keep coming out in the street including today at the beginning of the rolling strikes around the country. and so now the obama administration finds itself in the odd position that in order to get to that stability that they cherish and to get to the elections that they need to have and the constitutional reforms, they really need the protesters to stay out on the street. they need to foment a good deal of

guidelines were developed during the end of the bush administration and ultimately approved under the obama administration and signed by the current attorney general. the key piece here, if i may, is that you have to -- obviously, there are going to be places where you have to do law enforcement investigations. in my view, you have to have a balanced approach of not just those law enforcement investigations, but you have to engage with those communities with other non-law enforcement elements of the u.s. government to make sure this is not an adversarial situation. in fact, this is a partnership. and as you know well, many of our tips to uncover active terrorist plots here in the united states have come from the muslim community. so we have to make quite clear that the communities are part of the solution and not part of the problem. and you do that through using a variety of tools, not just law enforcement. >> time of the gentlelady has expired. dr. brown of georgia. >> thank you, mr. chairman. secretary, director, i appreciate y'all being here today. i have several pressing questions for
